Supports NGSS (Next Generation Science Standards®) MS-PS2 Motion and Stability: Forces and Interactions. Includes materials to build the arch, a hook to support masses, and a description of the mathematics associated with the catenary arch, a hyperbolic cosine function (if explaining to advanced mathematics or physics students). Masses sold separately; see items #751451, #751448, and #751442.
